Every year as September winds down, I like to give a little birthday party for the blog. She's nine years old now and half a million views from her beginnings in 2007 as a class project.
The blog has connected me to you, dear readers, over the years and continues to call me - even if I resist her siren song far more in semi-retirement.
Thanks for all your support and friendship. I still can't promise more frequent posts but we shall see what next year brings.
